I get a \newblock when I convert bibtex to bibitem using the method in BibTeX in LaTeX document

my code:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\nocite{*}
\bibliography{biblio}
\bibliographystyle{plain}
\end{document}

my biblio.bib file:

% survey

@article{erol2007vision,
  title={Vision-based hand pose estimation: A review},
  author={Erol, Ali and Bebis, George and Nicolescu, Mircea and         Boyle, Richard D and Twombly, Xander},
  journal={Computer Vision and Image Understanding},
  volume={108},
  number={1},
  pages={52--73},
  year={2007},
  publisher={Elsevier}
}

the generated test.bbl file:

\begin{thebibliography}{1}

\bibitem{erol2007vision}
Ali Erol, George Bebis, Mircea Nicolescu, Richard~D Boyle, and     Xander Twombly.
\newblock Vision-based hand pose estimation: A review.
\newblock {\em Computer Vision and Image Understanding}, 108(1):52-    -73, 2007.

\end{thebibliography}

the test.pdf generated looks like:

Is the test.bbl correct? What is the newblock thing? Does it comply with ieee robotics requirements? http://ras.papercept.net/conferences/support/tex.php

  • Yes, you are fine, don't worry. IEEE has its own bst file though maybe you should use IEEEtran.bst instead of plain.bst. – Johannes_B Jul 24 '16 at 6:49
  • IEEE also has its own documentclass. – Johannes_B Jul 24 '16 at 6:51
  • You would think that a robotics and automation journal likes to be at the edge of technology, but ... they should really really really update their website concerning TeX and friends. – Johannes_B Jul 24 '16 at 6:53
  • @Joahnnes: Thanks for your replies. The IEEEtran.bst is in the folder from which I am compiling the tex file. Do I have to include it in the code somehow? I havent used any other plain.bst – user27665 Jul 25 '16 at 14:30

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the question is about a nonissue. – egreg Dec 16 '17 at 22:18
